We’ve seen Samsung promise up to three years of OS upgrades to phones ranging as far back as the Galaxy S10, which is a huge improvement over its previous reputation as a brand that didn’t seem to care much about its customer’s needs. Seemingly ready to take up that particular mantle is Motorola whose list […]

Some manufacturers follow the strategy of slimming down the handset’s battery to make the device as thin as possible, often, seemingly, to the detriment of the user experience. Lenovo is bucking that trend, though, with its Vibe P1 and Vibe P1m handsets sporting batteries with capacities of 5,000mAh and 4,000mAh respectively. According to a media invite sent out earlier, Lenovo is launching both handsets in India on October 21st.
Let’s take a look at the larger of the two handsets first, the Vibe P1. Lenovo has bundled in features such as Rocket Charge, which seems to be very much like Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology, delivering 2.8 hours of talk-time for just 5 minutes of charge. There’s also a physical switch that enables the OneKey Power Saver function, extending battery life. The Vibe P1 will launch in India for around Rs. 17,500 ($ 270) on October 21st.
On to the mini version of the Vibe P1, if you will, the 5-inch Vibe P1m, and here we see a more budget-friendly offering from Lenovo. The Vibe P1m doesn’t have NFC connectivity, bit it does apparently have a nano-coating to help it withstand accidental spills, as well the physical OneKey Power Saver switch, which helps extend battery life. Check out the rest of the specifications below.
The Vibe P1m will launch in India on October 21st, with a price tag of around Rs. 10,000 ($ 154). What do you think of Lenovo’s Vibe P1 and P1m handsets? Have they been priced keenly enough for India’s congested smartphone market?
